  1. religion is not the same as Faith.

  2. The Tetons. A Blue county has sprung up there.

      My first thought was Arco, ID, but realized they’re too tall. Pic says Colorado.
      Blue and Red counties don’t matter anymore, the liberal brainwashing is everywhere now thanks to the schools and MSM, enhanced by apathy.

      If by your comment “the Tetons …a blue county, etc.” you really meant the political reality in Jackson Hole you are correct, but if you were relating to comment to the photograph you are not.

        Being facetious?
        And you live where………….?
        We’re both from Wyoming, Quietus and I.
        I used to work under them, next to the JH airport, so I’m vaguely familiar with their outline.

          No I’m not being facetious. I believe that this photo is a view from just west of the town of Westcliffe, CO. on Hwy 96. It’s a narrow valley with 13-14K peaks of the Sangre Cristo range running up to Salida. This photo appears to show Humboldt Peak on the left, the Crestone Needle in the middle, and Colony Baldy Peak on the right. It greatly resembles the east slope of the Tetons running from JH to the Oxbow Bend. I’ve spent lots of vacation time in both places.

          There is also another range from Salida to Buena Vista to Leadville that resembles these photos…it’s a range with lots of 14teeners; from Shavano to Elbert.

          Someone once said, “if you’re lucky enough to be in the mountains, you’re lucky enough. If you live around Moose, WY you are indeed lucky…it is spectacular. I really enjoyed the walk around Jenny and String Lakes the last time I was there and then enjoyed some wine on the roof of the lodge at Moose while watching the eagles circle. I think the early fall, just after the Labor day weekend is the best time to see this park. BTW, I live in Red Dirt country.

          Cheers,

        • ‘Twas another one of them things that it’s better to let ride, so I did.

          And it was a bad call on my part to call that pic the Teton Range. Looked like them. Funny, when you click on a pic to enlarge, a title comes up …

          Good thing I didn’t start on a seismographing story, where a now-dead Lama pilot ground taxied up one of them, did an ag turn at the top, and a fast (for a Lama) NOE run down it without getting caught. Or how that same guy took a load of juggies to Old Faithful, they were standing on the skids taking pictures of the tourismos.

  3. I know most if not all here at WRSA are familiar with this quote by John Adams but it bears repeating. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”.

    Aye, there’s the rub. Houston we have a problem.

    • And it’s even more important to remember this:
      “But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”
      -Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1782

      And:

      “Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity.”
      -Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1782

      Or as someone else more recently put it:

      “One man’s theology is another man’s belly laugh.”
      -Robert A. Heinlein

      As a Neo Pagan Witch and anarchist and Patriot I’m a pretty easy going guy. I have no problem with letting other folks live their own lives and enjoy their Liberty and privacy as long as they extend the same courtesy and respect to me in return. What I will not tolerate in any way, shape or form is the bully whether they operate from a strictly physical standing or a mental one derived from a false sense of ‘superiority’ derived from ideology regardless of its basis or ‘source’.
      In this regard, there is no qualitative difference between collectivism (dumb-ocracy, communism, fascisim or socialism..all forms of ‘gov/authority worship’) and its religious counterparts whether they be zionism,
      militant fundamentalist christianity or the death cult of mohammed the genocidal child molester (there are no ‘chosen people’ to me..it’s nothing more than a self serving lie!).

      If some wish to follow those ideologies that’s their choice, even though it be nothing more than self-inflicted slavery of the mind and body. What I will not tolerate is those who follow/believe any of that to tremor to force me to join/follow them after I’ve plainly said NO!

      That’s what my having my Fn-Fal and Glock pistol are for..to keep me equally free from the HMF’sWITTIC as well as the brain dead zealots who think nothing of commiting murder and worse in the name of their ‘god’.

      Happy Eostar!

      • As is your legitimate point of view. That I see God in things is not a demand that you see the same things, or the cause and purpose of those things. But, if I see them and refuse to relate what I have seen out of caution and in deference to someone who does not see the same things and might berate me for my claim, have I not succumbed to the will of another?

        • Be at peace TL.

          You haven’t personally attacked me physically not have you tried to coerce me to believe as you believe, nor would I do such to you or others.
          That’s the key point, we act and conduct ourselves rationally and with respect for the other person. moslems and their co-travelers have neither the wish or intention of respecting other folks let alone leaving them be.

          I have an older friend here who’s an Air Force vet who’s always ready to verbally start complaining about religion in general and Christianity in particular..it’s gotten so that I couldn’t stand his monotone screed and told him the other day, “there are no Christians standing here in front of you right now telling you how to live, what you should or shouldn’t do, let alone what you can or can’t do..you’re being more noisesome than you claim they are..put a sock in it and pipe down because now you’re starting to piss me off with your rant!”
          He wasn’t happy but he saw my point and shut up about it.

          Hope that helps to clear the fog.

          Nicely stated; but if you are of the secular side…read Spinoza.

          • NorthGunner

            Nope, I’m of the Neo-Pagan Witchy side.
            secularists, those that i’ve met tend to not believe
            in anything…they blow like the foxtails in the wind.

            Hope that helps answer that for you (although it was already mentioned
            in my original post).

        Don’t tell me how to think, and I won’t give you an argument in return. That includes derogatory remarks of how us heathens aren’t smart enough to get thru life without an imaginary friend or special book.

    This topic has already a long time ago been discussed.

    “…it is unlawful to follow one line of conduct in private life and another in public…; for this would amount to joining together good and evil, and to putting man in conflict with himself; whereas he ought always to be consistent, and never in the least point nor in any condition of life to swerve from Christian virtue.”

    Pope Leo XIII
    IMMORTALE DEI, para. 47
    November, 1885

    What is old, is new. Not much changes.

  5. For those who find “faith” unnatural, and for atheists content in knowing they have nothing in common with the commie kind but unsure at why they are different, I suggest archive.org/details/TheReligiousAttitudesOfTheIndo-europeans

    It will also answer why “a betrayal would simply be…” not simple at all for the people who already care about such things.

    If you like your god/God you can keep your god/God……..for now.
    There will be a sort of election soon, world wide. The run-up will be quite tumultuous, it has to be, it always has been.
    Choose you will.
    Today we remember one who gave all freely, without coercion, because we needed it. He said many things but,
    did one thing for you.
    Choose you will. It’s His-story. It’s coming.
    Ah, “multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decicion”
